Question about 2000 Volvo S40

1 Answer

Ignition Key to my 2000 Volvo C70 isn't catching.

Thanks in advance for your answer. The ignition key to my 2000 volvo c70 was sticking for while, and I had to wiggle the steering wheel and key to get it out... But today, when I went to turn the key, it actually turned a full spin or two before it caught. Is there anyway to tighten something in it, or is the ignition shot? If I replace the lock cylinder, will my old keys still work in it? Many thanks.

    What about repairing the window regulator for the passenger side door (2000 C70 convertible)... Everythings fine with it, except one of the tiny cables (that raise or lowe it) snapped. would LOVE not to have to buy the whole assemply... do you know of any place that can fix something like that (hopefully in Los Angeles).

    Many many many Thanks.

Volvo c70 starting problems

You just blindly replaced these parts? Were there fault codes that prompted you to think these parts are a problem, bet not. Was the fuel pressure checked when the problem occurred?

I cant get my keys out of the ignition on a c 70 2004 volvo

sounds like a broken wafer inside the ignition -- or it could be a bad spring(?) -- try and spray a SMALL amout of silicone/teflon based lubrication down into the lock ( along side the key ) and wiggle it back and forth and up and down -- this may release the key,,, if not - then the ignition will need to be replaced/rebuilt by a automotive locksmith.

1998 volvo s70. Gearshift has been sticking - must pull down lock to get it fully into "park". Problem today is that alarm sounds when you open the door or turn the key in the ignition. ...

There is a cable that connects your gearshift to the ignition switch, when this cable stretches, it does not allow the gearshift assembly to move when you have the key turned. Removed the assembly around the gear shift assembly and inspect this cable. Removed the cable and manually actuate the lever. See if this fixes the problem as it is common in the S70/C70/V70s that are pre 2000

Key will not turn in 2001 volvo c70

You can try moving the streering wheel back and forth a little. Or make sure the car is all the way in park. Other than that, maybe flipping the key....

If none of the above work, you may have the replace the ignition lock cylinder.

Good Luck.....

C70 Volvo key will not turn past point 1 in the ignition

The mechanical ignition assembly does have an electrical switch that will prevent it being turned if the safety checks fail - new assembly (if the electrical part is faulty) costs $700!!!!

Check that first.
Make sure the shifter is all the way in park and the button on the shifter is not stuck in.
If that is all good it could be a shifter cable stuck but is most likely a bad ignition cylinder (not switch).

I am lookind for a fault code reader reset dtcs service light for the home mechanic

Answer Ijust tried this with my 2004 C70 and it worked.

To reset your service light here are the steps.

1. Get in your car and shut the door.
2. Put your key in the ignition
3. Turn your ignition key to position 1
4. Push in your Odometer reset button and hold it in while holding it move the ignition key to position 2 while holding down the odometer reset button.
5. After couple of seconds of holding the button down and the key in position 2 your service light will start to blink once that happens let go of the reset button and start the car.

This should reset your service light and a service light on your Volvo C/S/V70 cars from 1999 onwards.
